Dr. Arthur Gray has always been passionate about helping people. When he was three years old, he began telling others he wanted to be a doctor and never once doubted his decision.
“I have been good with my hands all my life, and I felt that I had the compassion and work ethic to do well as a surgeon.”
A long road to hair replacement
Dr. Gray has been known to say that it took him many years of medical practice to finally arrive. Though he found satisfaction in his 30 years helping patients as an anesthesiologist, there was always something missing. When a colleague suggested a new career in hair restoration, Dr. Gray was intrigued. Upon researching the skill sets and abilities required, he knew that he had finally found his calling.
An ISHRS surgeon
Dr. Gray is a member of the distinguished International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS). This worldwide organization sets the standard for physicians specializing in hair restoration surgery and is constantly raising the bar for the industry. Gaining membership in the ISHRS was a crowning achievement for a surgeon so committed to innovating through ethics and excellence.
A unique medical practice offering the right answers
Patients from numerous states travel to the Hair Transplant & Restoration Center to access Dr. Gray’s transparent medical approach to treating hair loss. He has created an unparalleled resource by bringing together a comprehensive suite of proven solutions in a single practice. While he began by offering traditional surgical hair restoration procedures, it wasn’t long before he realized that serving his clients would mean incorporating more treatment methods. As new applications of Platelet-Rich Plasma emerged, Dr. Gray began to mold his practice into the innovative resource it is today. Dr. Gray also realized that the solution for every patient was not a hair transplant or medical therapy, and so he partnered with Cesare Ragazzi to offer a top-of-the-line hair system for patients.
Dr. Gray earned his pre-medical degree at Emory University majoring in chemistry. While at Emory, he was inducted into ODK, which is a national honorary leadership society. Soon after college, he and his wife were married and moved to Augusta, Georgia, where Dr. Gray began medical school at the Medical College of Georgia. After medical school he was accepted into the Anesthesiology Residency at the Medical College of Georgia and received the Top Resident Award, and became Board Certified.
Dr. Gray and Rosie moved to Macon, Georgia, where he has worked as a board-certified Anesthesiologist since 1984. His first 19 years in the medical field were spent at the HCA Coliseum Hospital where he served in many leadership positions, including Chief of Medical Staff. In 2003, Dr. Gray began working at Navicent Health, a level-one trauma center in downtown Macon.
An artist's eyes and a surgeon's hands
Dr. Gray has had a successful career in the medical field, but is not ready to hang up his lab coat. The perfect skill set for hair transplant surgery and the desire to continue helping people drive him to continue his practice. An excellent hair transplant surgeon must have strong hand-eye coordination to transplant follicular units, as well as an artistic ability to create a well-suited hairline design. Dr. Gray has honed these skills over many years of medical practice, and finds himself uniquely qualified to help those suffering the effects of hair loss.
Dr. Gray has been married to his wife, Rosie, for more than 40 years. They have four children, Christopher, Matthew, Sarah, and Hampton, two daughters-in-law, Angela and Jill, and four amazing grandchildren.
Interests and hobbies
Involved in his local community for numerous years, Dr. Gray has served both as an elder of his church and on his children's school board. He and Rosie love to be outdoors enjoying fly-fishing, cooking on his Big Green Egg, and bike riding. He has a talent for photography and painting, and recently attended an intensive training at Watts Atelier just north of San Diego for the purpose of honing his drawing and painting skills.
